Recent guest reviews

Stayed there for 3 nights..the hotel is modern and very clean..breakfast is ok it might need some improvement.. they have a very good coffee. You get around to Mandela square walking for lesd than 10 min or use the hotel free shuttle that will drop you also at the train station where you can get to the airport too.

Stayed there 4 days for a meeting. Rooms were modern and comfortable. Bathroom really nice. Good point for not using plastic bottles. Buffet lunch was good and hotel staff friendly. They have a fee shuttle to the centre where the Gautrain takes you to JNB in 10min

I spent one week in this hotel , as most of holiday inn hotels , it provide very good service and good value for money , the room is big and clean , reception are friendly and helpful , breakfast was delicious and have many varities , fruits was wonderful and fresh , hotel facilities are nice , location is perfect in sandton and near santon city mall where you have hourly shattle bus for free

One of the room cleaners opened my laptop bag and stole EUR 200.00 in notes of Eur 100. Case reported to reception. Until today 1st July no reply from the Hotel manager who said they would revert back to me.

This is the second time I stay here. I was happy to be back. The staff are ever so friendly and the location is very convenient. I got upgraded due to my IHG membership to an executive suite which is very spacious. It has a desk, bath tub, shower and a double sink. I recommend this hotel for business travellers, you won't regret it.

Since my last visit one year ago, I feel that the hotel lacks of maintenance in the details .. Still a good value, but management should work on small things ( missing handle on the lavabo, sharp edges on the desk due to loosening lamination, etc ).

This was a family stay for one night in 2 interleading rooms, during a vacation trip. After a long flight from Asia, the check-in took forever, and three staff were needed to figure out our booking on the computer, despite all booking references being provided. Barring this frustrating start, the rest went smoothly - the rooms are large (we had a view of a construction site next door, but didn't matter for a night), comfy large beds, well-stocked amenities, and a great buffet breakfast spread, manned by courteous & helpful restaurant staff. Wifi worked fine, but that was after some frustrating wrong login guidance by the helpdesk. Within a kilometre of Nelson Mandela Square, which provided several dinner options across cuisines.

I really recommend this hotel. The staff is very friendly and the costumer service excellent! The breakfast is great and the restaurant serves also in the evening delicious food. I am looking forward to stay next time in Joburg and come back to Holiday Inn.

The thing I will remember most about my most recent stay at the holiday inn Rivonia street, sandton is the sleep quality ....apart from the delightful and friendly staff i can't get over the amazingly comfortable bed ....will be back soon

If you fancy having a singing chef in the morning then stay here! A great omellet cooked by a singing chef... wonderful... service all round was great and the shuttle bus very convenient to Mandela Square. rooms a little dated but no issues at all great stay !
